BASF is showing at K show its innovative, super-slim high-performance insulation materials in new applications. The innovative high-performance products Slentite and Slentex are a new generation of energy-efficient aerogel-based insulation materials with outstanding material properties. The company is presenting new examples of applications in carbon concrete facade elements and motorhomes.
Slentex is an easy-to-process and non-combustible material based entirely on mineral raw materials. As a single-layer, flexible mat, it is now available for a variety of applications in the construction and modernization sectors. With a λD value of 19 mW/m • K, the material achieves much lower thermal conductivity than conventional mineral insulation materials and permits the construction of very slim wall structures. Beneficially, the material is non-combustible, has an A2-s1, d0 fire class, and is ETA-certified. It also permits the diffusion of water vapor (μ ~ 5) while also being hydrophobic, thus making it ideal for facade applications.
"...new examples of applications in carbon concrete facade elements and motorhomes" Awesome! No Oxford comma. I can dig a geo-polymer motor home.

Basalt geo-mesh embedded in a polymerized sandstone matrix a fraction of an inch thick.
